A&D

Books and other missing items

Postby themagicdude » Thu Nov 15, 2007 3:19 am

[quote="dirkmay"]Don't bother to read the other two, which were quite boring and predictive. For that matter, I've once read a book called 'the templar revelation' and here I found almost all 'riddles' found in the davinci code. Maybe plagiarism?[/quote]

I've read all four of Dan Brown's books and I thought they were all execelent! There were plenty of plot twist; definitely not "predictive." A&D was probably the best; I really recomend it. (Puzz obviously likes it.) Even if it's not the book he was talking about, it's definitely worth reading. I also really recomend "Digital Fortress" for any puzzle lovers. (Probably won't find any of them on a forum like this.) On the last page of the book, there's a nice puzzle that can really only be solve by reading about some of the codes in the book. It was great!!! :D

Can someone say Audiobook. make sure you get the unabridged version though.

The catholic church just released a book about what happened between the Templars and the Vatican (ancient scroll prints)...its only $8,000.00 dollars and they only did 300 copies :shock: :shock:

I'm pretty sure that thing can't be solved. Did you make a typo?

My personal opinion...


The Da Vinci Code - Could have been better, yet DB dumbed it down for the larger audience.

Angels & Demons - Entertaining. Would make for a good film (hint hint)

Deception Point - A little less obvious than the others in it's storyline, maybe worth another read through.

Digital Fortress - As I was in a computer course at the time, I thought it might be interesting, sadly mistaken. Bit of a no-brainer, good for before bed.




Again, I stress the personal opinion ;)

Heh, I know :)

Thought I'd put the hint hint in there for those that didn't know, and had the interest to look up if one was planned ;)


Looking forward to it!

:lol:
I thought the 'hint hint' was directed at any Hollywood movie producers that might be on the Isis adventure :twisted:

I loved the book - much more than the other 3, and checked imdb.com as soon as I finished it. I still don't understand why they made DVC into a film first. A&D and Deception Point would have made far better films.
